Various Methods for Hyperthyroidism Cure

Age of the patient, the form of hyperthyroidism, the severity of the disease and other medical conditions of the patient are some of the factors a physician decide for the treatment to be used for hyperthyroidism cure.

Drug therapy, radioactive iodine therapy, and surgery are some of the common treatment methods used for hyperthyroidism cure.In patients with sustained forms of hyperthyroidism, such as Grave's disease or toxic nodular goiter, antithyroid medications are used for hyperthyroidism cure. The antithyroid medications when used prevent the thyroid gland from producing hormones. Some of the widely used antithyroid medications include methimazole and propylthiouracil (PTU).

The antithyroid drugs used for hyperthyroidism cure can cause side effects such as rash, itching, or fever. However, the occurrence of side effects due to the use of these medications prescribed for hyperthyroidism cure is only rare cases. One of the other widely used treatments is the radioactive iodine treatment. Hyperthyroidism cure is accomplished using a radioactive form of iodine that gives off a poisonous type of radiation to the thyroid gland which kills the thyroid cells that absorb radiation.

Complete hyperthyroidism cure using this treatment method takes around one to two months. This is the time required by the infected thyroid cells to die down. One of the major advantages of this treatment method is that hyperthyroidism cure is accomplished with a single dose. Surgical removal of the thyroid gland or nodule is one of the other treatments, which involves removing all or part of the gland.
